Whittling board
portable spoon carving seat

Here is a little easy project I had in my mind for a while, it’s basically just a board, that you sit on, so you get some support for the thing, you are carving or whittling. Why? Just for ease and safety, like this you will have an extra hand and can cut away from your self. I think especially for the kids, this could be a fine idea.

The name… I had no idea what to call it, many years ago I saw a simple version, where it was just a board, with a stop, but now I had the idea how to finish it and make it more versatile. So Whittling board / Snitte brædt (in Danish).

These pictures are from the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/129883


Pictures:
1. A man on top of his whittling board.
2. Cutting the shape from old floor board.
3. The parts.
4. Making a bowl head.
5. Just take a seat.
6. You can call it, what ever you like. ;-)

Hope it can be to some inspiration, even whittling with the kids perhaps?

Best thoughts,

Thanks pottz. Yes I can imagine after a long day, the back will get tired. Mine is almost broken now after a full day at the shaving horse, making that long bow. Smiles.

Holding the darn things still while you make em look like a spoon is half the trouble. Looks like an awesome fix.

Thanks for posting.

Another clever one Mafe. With the cord you can carry it slung on your back as well as hold your work piece.

Spoon-vise-to-go. I saw people use the string-method in the past, but your combination with a board you sit on is , such a brilliant idea! Thanks a lot for sharing, Mads!

Hi guys,
(Why are there never any woman, putting comments on my posts… hmmmm).
majuvla, smiles my friend, I also find it a joy, to see a working person, all in the work, thoughts put aside.
Underdog, life works in that way, so much we don’t know we need… :-D :-D Thanks.
Joe Lyddon, Joe! You are always up for a good comment and to make me laugh. Thanks. When we reach a tie in life, it can be a good idea to write notes, to remember, my problem is, that I can never find the notes…
Jim Jakosh, big smile Jim, thank you.
Woodwrecker, dohhhhh who? ;-D Thank you.
MrWolfe, Thank you.
Gary, wonderful Gery, then it was worth making the blog by now.
therealSteveN, smiles, yes holding is half the work. Thanks.
swirt, good idea, I might make a cut, so the sting can be attached for back carry. Thanks.
muesli, warm smile from here thanks. Ideas cn grow ideas.
Don W, thank you Don.
Best of my thoughts to all of you,
Mads
